William Parker Quartet
William Parker Quartet William Parker has established himself as one of the preeminent bassists in creative contemporary music. Touring in support of his acclaimed CD Sound Unity, the William Parker Quartet features alto saxophonist Rob Brown; trumpeter Lewis Barnes; and longtime Parker collaborator Hamid Drake, on drums. Although favorably compared to Ornette Coleman’s classic quartet, this talented group of musical visionaries forges its own creative path, proving avant-garde jazz can be accessible as well as “cutting-edge.”
